, to reshape the role of government in our lives for the next decade. so you've got to be with me on this. and in the short-term maybe he can say to them we're not going to do entitlement reform, but in the long-term -- and there are some progressives like dick durbin -- senator dick durbin of illinois who says you've got to do this. in the long-term we have to do entitlement reform. i would argue that in the short-term we ought to look at something that might look like the clinton coalitions, which is that the leader of each party, the president and john boehner, might have to take not a majority of his own party, but less than that and come together to forge some kind of a deal. i may be living in a dream world, but i think that's within the realm of the doable. >> we also have this issue of negotiation by public appearance. john boehner versus the president of the united states. and we want to just look at the sound bites from today and talk about how much of this is posturing and how much of this is sort of revealing a bottom line. let's listen. >> when i came out the day after the el

, security, public safety, those are the fundamental obligations of government. and secondly, we live in an increasingly dangerous world with increasing threats against our citizens and targets that are viewed as high profile. for those reasons, mr. speaker and others, i earnestly believe those who serve this country as president should never have to worry about their personal safety. under current law, protection for president obama and president george w. bush will cease after 10 years. both men are young, enjoy good health and have long lives ahead of them postpresidency. this bill proposes to extend that security for the remainder of their lives. there's an unintended anomaly, mr. speaker, that were current law not changed, barbara bush would have more safety than if they were president themselves. the person and the symbol of our presidency is safe and secure for the occuration of their natural lives. with that i would yield. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from michigan. mr. conyers: mr. speaker, before i yield to the distinguished gentlelady fr
